There's No Place Like Home

Check out Karan's new sketch and other fabulous design team reveals over at Sketchabilities. Since this reveal falls so close to Halloween I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This was so fun (and challenging) to do. I hope you get all the subtle and not so subtle references included in this layout. There are 3 - 4 references - can you guess them all?

Here's the sketch and my layout.

Rainbow: Red -  Jillibean Soup Old World Cabbage Stew "Brown Rice"; Orange - Lilybee Domestic Bliss "Centerpiece" Yellow - Heat Embossed Misc. Yellow Cardstock; Blue - CMTH Splendor; Green - Jillibean Soup Old World Cabbage Stew "Diced Tomatoes" ; Purple - Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock "Grape Jelly"

Squares: October Afternoon Thrift Shop "Complete Set", Jillibean Soup Old World Cabbage Stew "Red Peppers"; Misc. Green Cardstock; Stripes Paper Uknown 

Ribbon - My Mind's Eye Lost & Found; Clouds - CTMH Splendor Paper; Alphas: Colorbok Modern Red Glitter Clear Stickers, Thickers Delight Fabric Letter Stickers "Leaf" & "White" (misted with Shimmerz Chick-a-dee); October Afternoon Mini Market Stickers "Indigo & Cream"

The rainbow looks like it should be so easy to pull off but I had to go include an arch and then of course they had to line up perfectly so there wouldn't be any gaps. Let's just say my ruler got a lot of use that day. If you try this make sure to measure it all out on scratch paper and cut a template for each strip. That way to can make sure it will line up correctly once it's all cut out. I did that and it worked beautifully (no wasted pattern paper).

Oh, if you complete a layout using Sketchabilities Sketch #33 or Sketch #34 and link using Mr Linky you will qualify to win a scrapkit worth $35.00 from have until Nov 10 to complete this challenge!
